     (Logo: )

The automotive paints industry has not only adopted the advancements of the automotive industry but is also growing in line with automobile demand. Automotive paint is a multifaceted technology that has grown in terms of products, durability and color options offered to the customer. The industry started with simple natural pigments and varnishes. However, present day automobiles are coated with high tech polymer based coatings.

Conventional coating application methods, such as air dry varnish, that were popular in the past have now been successfully replaced with new cost-effective technologies (namely, air gun, HVLP guns, etc.). At present, industry players are focusing on spray technologies with minimal wastage, environment friendly coatings (such as low Volatile Organic Compounds [VOC] waterborne paints, zero VOC powder coating, or futuristic UV coating), and a reduction in the number of required coating layers.

Demand for vehicles is increasing at a promising rate, specifically for passenger cars and light commercial vehicles. According to the OICA (Organization Internationale des Contructeurs d' Automobiles), the global vehicle production in 2012 reached to 84.1 million units, of which 63.0 million units were passenger cars, light commercial vehicles accounted for 16.9 million, and heavy commercial vehicle production was 4.1 million units. Due to the increase in the vehicle production, automotive paints consumption also increased in 2012 and it is anticipated that the market for automotive paints will grow at a corresponding promising rate.
